I live in Florida about half a mile from the beach, and it's a sinkhole zone. At any moment can a sinkhole bust out of nowhere and eat your entire family and leave you weeping in sorrow, giving handjobs to strangers behind a 7/11 to get money to rebuild your shattered life.
Same here, except I think I've seen one sinkhole ever in real life, and I'm not even sure it was a natural sinkhole. It sort of looked like if someone pushed a running hose into the ground and all the dirt and sand around the hole started caving inward toward the hole on a slope. Someone told me it was a sinkhole though. Now that I'm older I think someone was messing with water a little bit too much.
It was shaped like this tub. Maybe a little bit more concave, but not too much. And it was huge, like with a diameter of 30+ feet.
After looking up sinkholes for about five or six minutes I have concluded that they're nothing more than dark, twisted fairy tales created by political cartoonists and conspiracy theorist nutjobs who want to wish some sort of legitimate or financial death on things or people that are built on the ground. It would seem to follow that Florida and Texas are some of the "riskier" areas. One "article" I found even mentioned the possibility of the entire country of Chile sinking into the ocean to allow new beachfront property for Argentina. How far will these dark wizards of geology go to appease their thirst for instilling fear in their enemies?
